Forums: More new forums, New iPod, RIP iT5, Linux Forum?

In this week’s look at the iLounge Discussion Forums: a new set of forums have been launched for the new iPod 5G (video). We have opened a General Discussion forum, which is already seeing a lot of activity, a forum for Problems & Solutions, which we hope will see little activity, and we’re sure the Cases forum for the new iPod will see plenty of posts.

Members share their views of the “new iPod,” “video iPod,” or “5G iPod” in “The Official “New iPod” Discussion Thread”. Love it and want one? Or are you ambivalent about the newest Apple iPod? Share your views.

With the release of iTunes 6 during the “One More Thing” event, iTunes 5 is relegated to the history books as the shortest-lived version of iTunes. Join other members mourning its passing and reminiscing its brief time installed on their computers…

We have had a request from a member to establish a forum to cater for Linux iPod users within the iLounge community. At present there seems to be little in the way of a large enough response from the Linux iPod users to warrant a dedicated forum. Are you a Linux iPodder and would a Linux forum be of use? If so, please comment in the thread.

The reason for the jump to “6” in naming the latest iTunes iteration is simple and obvious. When iLife ‘05 was release, everything was the fifth version of something iMovie (although it was called iMovie HD), iPhoto, and iDVD. iTunes and Garage Band were the only stand-outs. Now, when iLife ‘06 is released, the only one sticking out like a sore thumb will be Garage Band.
